Here are Merrick’s top five stories today:

  1. Nassau County AD say that two people have been charged with the murder of a Baldwin man, said DA. The death occurred in October 2021 during an apparent drug smuggling. Darin Semple20, from Freeport, and Devin Obleanis, 21, of Central Islip, are facing charges. (Patch)
  2. Get ready for outdoor music! the Mineola Village announced his Calendar 2022 Concerts in the Park. Enjoy swing music, Allman Brothers covers, 70s AM radio hits and more on Mineola Memorial Park Amphitheater all summer. (American Mineola)
  3. Find adobo chicken, lumpia and other appetizing Filipino Classics to one of East Meadow latest entries in its line of restaurants. Kusinera opened this winter in East Meadow, offering traditional dishes as well as dishes cleverly adapted to be vegetarian. Chef/Owner Joy Ann Salanga said she started cooking in her apartment, but the demand for her food motivated her to open a restaurant. (press day; subscription required)
  4. Meet locals animals to adopt at the Merrick Patch. Minnie, Pheonix and others are waiting for their forever homes.
